If anybody could supply some information I would be exceedingly grateful!
I have a gorgeous 1991 Alfa 75 3.0 V6 Cloverleaf - just in case their are any ambiguities.
I have had the car from new and have had it in storage for some nine years. I run the girl up every 4-6 months and to date she has always fired straight away and run like the dream she is.
However I recently attempted to start her and she was not interested at all. Turns over fine, but not a dickie of a cough, splutter, spit or growl.
To cut a long story shortish, I tracked down that no fuel was arriving at the injector rail. I replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter (although I had never had any previous issues with either) and now fuel is running to the rail perfectly....but still no start.
It now appears that no fuel is coming through ANY of the injectors (no plugs are at all wet or smell of fuel.)
I am, at this stage, reluctant to dismantle the entire injector rail as I am somewhat suspicious - I could understand if one or maybe two injectors may have become clogged for some reason, but all six? I would be mighty surprised.
A) Does anybody know if there is any sort of mechanical/electro-mechanical/electrical 'cut-out' or anything similar that kicks in if fuel stops running to the engine, if the fuel pump packs up or anything similar?
B) If the answer to A) is "No", has anybody got any idea what the problem could be?
I am pretty desperate to get this sorted so any early replies would be exceedingly appreciated!
Thanks in advance for your time/advice.
